Cole Haan: A Brand Story
August 25, 2014

There are a lot of designer brands out there known for their quality shoes, but few have a reputation as iconic as Cole Haan. And that makes total sense, because Cole Haan completely deserves a continual standing ovation for their timeless designs, luxurious leathers, and brilliant designs. 

In fact, the brand has been going strong for decades, founded in 1928 by Trafton Cole and Eddie Haan. Their mission? Make goods that are well-designed and comprised of only the best materials. We’d say that was a pretty smart business plan, considering Cole Haan is still at the top of the style game today. Don’t believe us? Here’s your proof:

  1. 100% leather. 100% awesome.
    When we say Cole Haan makes some of the best leather shoes, we mean it. From classic oxfords to new sport sneakers, genuine, quality leather is the name of the game.

  2. It’s all about the details.
    Every guy’s got a pair of dress shoes. Truly stylish gentlemen look past basic styles and reach for a pair with loads of cool details. Cap toes, colored laces, or brogue details on oxfords or loafers say you’re well dressed and not afraid to show it!

  3. But it’s also about comfort.
    Nearly every Cole Haan shoe we’ve ever worn has been insanely comfortable. That’s because the brand makes sure their pairs are lined with soft, squishy cushioning that feels good all day long. Imagine walking around the office in your nicest wingtip oxfords, but feeling like you’ve slipped on your favorite athletic shoes or slippers. Best idea ever? Grab a pair and be the judge!
